Day 228

Monday, January 25, 2021


Not my best food day (bread and cheese with a side ice cream...) but I'm within my calorie range so not a total fail! I walked at my normal time but procrastinated my workout (strength training plus a 22 min high impact dance workout that had me SWEATING) until later than ideal. My sleep schedule is shifting later and later again so I need to get that under control this week! I've noticed that I feel groggy when I've been sleeping in too much and going to bed later, even if I'm getting the same amount of sleep. Today I got up for a minute only for Cloud to steal my chair! Thief!

    Ah...kitty understands the best places in the house! Good for you for blogging and making yourself accountable. Yes...you and I need more fruits and vegetables! We can do this! When it comes to health habits, health experts recommend changing just one health habit at a time. I began my journey with a goal of drinking 8 glasses of water daily. My usual was to drink 1 daily cup of water or, maybe, two. So...I made a short term goal of drinking just 3 cups of water daily for 7 consecutive days. If I forgot and got less than 3cups on any given day, the rule was to start over at day one to try for another 7 days straight. This took me several weeks to get it right, but I finally succeeded and rewarded myself in a non-food way. I then made a new goal of 4 cups of water for 7 days straight. By rewarding my successes and moving on in this way, I eventually adopted a new and much healthier habit of daily drinking 8 cups of water. Once I conquered that I moved on to fruit and vegetable servings and worked up to 5 in the same manner. If I have a day when I slip up (we all do), I go back to tracking my water to make sure I get my 8 or tracking my fruit/vegetable servings to make sure I get my five. At this time, I do both of these things automatically, without having to even think about them. Sleep and exercise are both areas of need for me now. I’m tackling sleep first because without sleep, I have no motivation to exercise. My current bedtime is an atrocious 5:00 am. So, tonight I will go to bed at three in the morning...for 7 days straight before I begin going to bed at 1:00 am. This may take me several months but I’m not giving up. I may stumble or I may fall, but I’m not going to quit before I achieve my healthier habit of going to bed at 11:00 at night, every night, forever (with slip ups here and there). Spark cheers for your journey! emoticon emoticon emoticon
